  1. Please advise which train stations I need to take for my below travel itinerary & duration of each ride & departure & arrival time if possible.

Trip 1 - Haneda airport to Takayama
Trip 2 - Takayama to Kyoto
Trip 3 - Kyoto to Tokyo

  1. Can I validate & exchange my JR Pass before the actual start date of my Pass?
    Example : Validate & exchange on 1 Jan 2017 Start Date of 7 days Pass on 3 Jan 2017

Thank you.

Hi SC,

The train stations are the same as the city names you wish to travel to. To find the exact time tables and route information, I recommend learning to plan with Hyperida. This way you can find any route yourself.

Hope this helps,
